  1. Wow mate yep that’s gone are you gonna build another zf?
  2. I didn’t use straps on mine it was fine mate, so you should be ok. Good luck starter was a bitch on of the most annoying parts hahaha keep us posted
  3. I had the plastic pan on mine (bf) and it was fine, I didn’t use a trans jack I used a workshop trolley with wood across it and it was fine. The plastic all over pan has a drain plug on the pan but as I understand there one use only, considering the whole pan is $90 it’s cheap insurance considering the price of the box. If your doing this on ramps may be tricky unless you have a really low trans jack. Your gonna need the extensions ahhahahha
  4. Hey mate, the noise sounds pretty bad its not that hard to take out so save yourself some coin. I’m not to sure what that noise would be but sure could be input shaft. Even billet zf shaft would have a snapping point put enough load on anything and it will break. I guess there also the possibility something else has cause that noise (blown converter or something) I’m not sure probs a tear down job. After some small tests. Only thing I can say is make sure to drain and clean all the transcooler lines and cooler intself especially if the trans has put metal into the oil.
  5. Hey mate, you should be able to get it on ramps if there high enough. I ended up getting use of a hoist when I did mine, the hardest part was getting the trans back in and aligned. For getting it out what I remember is: -disconnect battery -lift up car -drain the fluid out the trans. -undo tailshaft -undo starter -move the heat exchanger out the way (best time to put in a external cooler if you don’t wanna milkshake it later on) -remove trans cooler lines out the way -undo shifter linkage -disconnect gearbox electrical plugs -undo the converter bolts -loosen all the bell housing bolts a little leaving the easiest to get ones to last -support cross member undoing the bolts -lower the cross member should move a bit down. -jack the front of the engine (make sure bonnet is open) this will allow gearbox to sit on angle making it easier to get to the top bolts -once you have it on an angle use a second jack to take the weight of the trans and complete undo all the trans bolts going from hardest to reach to easiest. -release front jack and allow trans to level a little before giving it a tug and removing it. While your there and have the trans removed best time to do the rear main seal (get this from ford don’t cheap out or it will leak) You need enough room to roughly have the gearbox on a 30degree angle whilst on a jack if that gives you an idea. When I did mine I swapped the mechatroics unit over as I have heard they are programmed to the body of the car (someone might be able to confirm) if you need to do this it’s quite simple let me know and I’ll try give you acouple pointers I did reuse the new gearbox’s valve body thou. Hope that helps mate. Only a rough guide mostly there thou 👌👌
  6. Ok sweet mate sounds like a plan thank you, I’ll look into it thank you
  7. update ( doing service and gonna replace all the rotors all round and pads) going to buy a booster/master too does anyone know if na and turbo ones are the same? (Mines a xr6 bf turbo 2006)
  8. Hey guys I’ve doing some work in my project car, it’s a bf turbo. Now here’s what happen, I was driving went to hit the brakes and hardly anything happen the pedal went to the floor it locked the rear up al little..... but his the wired part the pedal was locked to the floor keeping the brakes stuck on..... even if we moved a 1m forward would release so I used my hand to lift the pedal up and they started to work again. that left me thinking I had a booster issue, I check the lines and pressure coming out of it both good. How ever when feeling the pressure coming into the booster I noticed it built up with the revs but when the bov went off it had some blow back I’m not sure if that affecting it. So I’m wondering if anyone has insite into this am I right thinking I need a new booster like one of the diaphragms inside could be stuffed. Thank you
  9. Thank you that’s it a lot of help, I thought so just wanted to make sureee thank you
  10. Hey I was wondering if anyone has the factory boost controller wiring? Mine has a boost T on it and I want the factory one back on it
  11. Hey mate cheers for the help, the traction light only comes on when the engine light comes on (its like there paired and im not able to deactivate traction once it has come on) but if I reset the battery and all the warning lights are gone traction control works like it should and will come off and on. also on a side note: the engine will not trip out in park or neural even if I was to rev it really hard too
  12. Hey guys I’ve recently bought an xr6 turbo the car seams solid but has some issue which I would love to get some more experienced opinions about (I’ve come from the dark side Rb30s) so it’s a Bf motor mildly built (aftermarket transcooler, intercooler, valves, head studs and some more goodies) zf6 too when driving I receive and engine light and traction is always on sometimes when this happens error po237 comes on. I have a boost gauge installed and it hits 5psi I have currently looped out the factory solinoid and gone straight from the turbo nipple to the wastage. Which makes me think that it’s a bad tune, unless I have a faulty map sensor or boost sensor? Am I on the right path? Also when I clear the codes and go for a drive it will run for a while with no problems until I boot it at around 3thousand when it shuts off and Speedo goes to 0 then goes back in gear. From what I’ve seen bad coils can do this?? The coils were changed 2 years ago It is fine if I very slowly ramp up the rpm Am I on the right path with looking at these issues thank you very much. Just hoping to get some more knowledge of the engines and if anyone has had this happen.
  13. Hey guys I have a bf turbo with a zf I am swapping over the box as it’s faulty I know the basics like remove starter undoing of converter ect I was wondering if there is a how to for removal/install just for a bit of help/guildline if there’s not I will take pictures along the way when I do mine. thanks
